Words of the week – we are introducing our children to new vocabulary every week. These words will be sent home on a weekly basis. Please ask your child what they mean and encourage them to use them as often as possible when speaking. 

Please encourage your child to read a few pages of their reading book every night. We love to read in our school and believe ‘The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go’

A child

A book

A read

A chat

That is the way the mind grows

Not with a test, but a tale…

We have had a fantastic start to this year. We have already learnt so much and hopefully have had fun whilst doing it!


In Mathematics, we have been following the White Rose Maths planning and have started with Number and Place Value (within 10). As part of our lessons, we have been sorting and grouping objects, counting objects and matching to the correct numeral, counting forwards and backwards, finding 1 more and 1 less than a given number and comparing numbers and quantities.

In English, we have started our work based on the story Class Two at the Zoo by Julia Jarman. 

The children have collected lots of vocabulary related to feelings as well as lots of adjectives and we have written sentences using these words, making sure we include our finger spaces and full stops! 


We have been learning basic skills of using a computer in mouse in computing with Mr Goodall and Miss Sargent. We have been able to use programs such as  https://frontend.letsgolearn.com/practice/bubbles

and https://www.abcya.com/games/take_a_trip   as well as creating pictures using 2dPaint. 


We have been looking at art skills through using Lego blocks to design a pattern, experimenting with media and creating 2D shape abstracts like the artist Kandinsky and painting by colour mixing.

Outside, we have been learning new skills as well. Take a look at how fantastic we are at skipping.
